Old Home Town - 100 years ago

October 31, 2006


From the Lawrence Daily World for Oct. 31, 1906: "Before an audience of more than 1,200 people, Gov. Hoch clearly set forth the issues of the election campaign last night at the opera house and it was considered one of the best political meetings ever held here. : From Cheyenne, Wyo., come news that six troops of cavalry are moving toward the Ute Indians on the Powder River to break up a gang of 100 who are considered renegades. The Utes say they are determined not to give in, saying if they do they will be returned from Wyoming to Utah where they will not have enough to eat. : The Lawrence Fire Department has been designated the best such department in the state and the record certainly merits such an honor.
